The incidence of side effects may be reduced by applying a slow infusion instead of a rapid bolus infusion
or by reducing the bolus dose from 2 mg to 1 mg (24).
In addition, in antibiotics in which minimal inhibitory concentration is important (as in cephalosporins), slow oral absorption may be as effective as intravenous bolus infusion
of 400 ng/kg ANGII increased mean [P.sub.DA] to 27.1 [+ or -] 2.7 mmHg from a baseline of 14.7 [+ or -] 2.5 mmHg (P < 0.05) (Fig.
Prior studies have shown that using a higher cumulative anthracycline dose when administered as a bolus infusion
increases the risk of cardiotoxicity in children and adults [8, 9].
administered epidural bolus infusion
of fentanyl (4 mcg / mL) to the first group of levobupivacaine (0.125%) to the second group and of a combination of levobupivacaine (0.125%) + fentanyl (4 mcg / mL ) to the third group.
Muir, "Does alteplase bolus infusion
delay affect outcome?" International Journal of Stroke, vol.
When shock is diagnosed fluid resuscitation should commence with a rapid (over 5 - 10 min) bolus infusion
of 20 ml/kg isotonic crystalloid, e.g.
And since bolus infusion
is as effective as continuous infusion, many may switch to bolus treatment because it is more convenient, he said.
A slow bolus infusion
of low dose tolazoline (0.5 mg-2 mg/kg) mixed with plasmanate or normal saline (10 mL/kg) was administered.
The onset of action is within 30 seconds after bolus infusion
with duration of action from 3 to 10 minutes.
Accordingly, we conducted a controlled, randomised, cross-over large animal experiment to investigate the effects of a bolus infusion
of one litre of normal saline or one litre of Gelofusine[R] on systemic haemodynamics, regional blood flows and regional oxygen delivery.
